The rain returns, but not for long
SEATTLE — A great start for the day around much of the region with just a few bands of very light showers/sprinkles this morning. This will change as we get into the afternoon. I think today is the day we break our unseasonably long dry streak. We have 17 days of dry weather under our belts and one of the driest starts to June we’ve seen in a long while. The driest June ever in Seattle’s recorded weather history is 0.13″ of rain back in 1951. So far in June we’ve seen zero rain at the official record keeping spot at SeaTac.
TODAY we’ll see showers move in by the afternoon. There’s a slight chance for some pop-up t-storms this afternoon and evening too. High temps 65-70 for just about everyone west of the Casacdes. Tonight showers continue with overnight lows 55-60.
THE WEEKEND still looks pretty pleasant. FRIDAY has some morning showers, but clearing expected in the afternoon. A bit cooler though. Highs around Seattle/Puget Sound going to be in the low 60s. For some locations that’s almost ten degrees below normal for this time of year. SATURDAY looks cloudy but mostly dry with a few mountain showers. Highs about mid 60s. SUNDAY looks pretty good for Father’s Day. High temps in the upper 60s with a good shot for some afternoon showers.
NEXT WEEK we’re trending drier and warmer with mostly sunny skies and temps in the mid 70s by the middle of the week for Seattle, closer to 80 for SW Washington or if you’re headed to Portland.
